Aaah yeah... yet another GeForce GTX 500 series product spawns out of cyberspace. Man, both ATI/AMD and NVIDIA have been really active with all the new product releases ever since Q3 last year now.
To address the lower mid-range segment NVIDIA today outs the GeForce GTX 550 Ti, priced at roughly 135 USD we call it the bang for buck product. And guess what, the 550 Ti is nothing to be ashamed about.
A product that will likely replace the GTS 450 real soon. Armed with an all new GF116-400 GPU this product has 192 shader processors embedded and is running a cool full gigabyte of GDDR5 memory on a 192-bit wide bus.
The first series of cards already arrived like two weeks ago here in that underworld we call the Guru3D trenches...
Today we'll be putting the N550GTX-Ti from MSI to the test, armed with the new Cyclone II cooler we expect no noise and excellent cooling. The full SKU name is N550GTX-Ti Cyclone II OC, as the card comes factory overclocked as well. We'll have a deeper look in the product gallery of course. As stated this card comes factory overclocked, from 900 towards 950 MHz. Extremely high frequencies... but get this, we'll bring this card towards a whopping 1100 MHz today.
Let's have a peek at what the GTX 550 Ti has in store for us... yep, it's the voodoo that we do-do, to quote a certain mister Sheen.
In this article we review the Gigabyte GeForce GTX 650 Ti Boost OC WindForce 2X with that OC for a factory tweak and the Windforce indicating a silent yet powerful two fan cooling solution. The product is customized with a new PCB, cooling and a few tweaks, it has 2GB of memory with both that memory and the core base-clock slightly overclocked. An tasty product at an interesting price in the lower segment of the mainstream market.
ASUS GeForce GTX 670 DirectCU Mini review
In this article we review the ASUS GeForce GTX 670 DirectCU Mini edition, a compact performance graphics card designed primarily for small form factor PCs with mini ITX motherboards. The dual-slot card measures just 17cm and features the NVIDIA GTX 670 GPU. ASUS has re-engineered the DirectCU cooler to fit small form factor cases. While shorter, it introduces a copper vapor chamber placed directly on top of the GPU for faster heat spreading and dispersal with 20% lower temperatures than reference GTX 670.
